I'm surprised that no one mentioned that the levels are independent (without the need for a BtB exe) this time. That as well as antiviruses enjoying the taste of the provided exes.

Or maybe someone has and I just haven't noticed. :roll:

Thanks. Anyway, when I typed nur I actually meant jetzt... :duh: I guess I messed it up with the English now - lack of practice makes imperfect. :)

The "competition form" page for entering the guesses seems to be down currently. I'd really like to try out some combinations... :D

Well, sorry, but I seem to be just not smart enough today to figure out the problem. :(

If anyone here is an expert in migrating php scripts from v5.6 to v7+ then I would love to hear from you, as this is why the issue occurs. My script uses list commands and arrays and apparently the handling of these changed in php7, hence the script throws an error now that I have not been able to resolve yet...

In the meantime, if anyone wants to get rid of their BtB guesses, given we only have 8 builder - level pairs to submit, maybe you can simply PM me your choices and I will then record them manually in the database.

Ok - guess I had a "smarter" day today - the guessing form should now be available for submissions :D

Having just finished the last level and submitted my reviews, I've just nipped in to say a great big thank you to everyone involved for some really enjoyable raiding.

We may have had fewer levels this year, but, hey, it's all about the quality, n'est pas?

And now I shall attempt to catch up with the numerous new levels I haven't reviewed yet. Psiko has a lot to answer for. :lol:

@Jay
Wow, that was quick. I'm only just getting round to submitting my third review right now, since I've found these BtB levels to be longer than I thought (which is no bad thing :D). I'll just say that although the submissions are few, I'm really impressed with what I've seen so far. :2thumbsup:

@Ryan
I do tend to drop everything and concentrate on the B2B levels. I have a horror of not managing to review them all for whatever reason. I just feel so strongly that if you're going to review a B2B level you should do your best to review all of them. After all the work that goes into these levels, it really is only fair to give the builders a level playing field.

And yes, the 'roughly an hour's net gaming time' turns out to be three times that for some of them, although I freely admit I'm a slow raider. I'm so often reminded during B2B of Dimpfelmoser's review one year, which began 'one hour my a**e'. :lol: Sigh. I really miss his reviews.
